General Information 



Object of the Summer Session 

The Summer Session is intended to provide instruction for reg- 
ular students of this and other colleges and universities and for 
those engaged during the winter in teaching. 



Location 

The location of Shaw University is especially convenient, situ- 
ated practically in the heart of the Capital City. No car or cab 
fares will be necessary to visit the shopping district, State Depart- 
ment of Education, State Museum, State Library, Hall of History, 
and other places of educational interest. An exceedingly bracing 
and healthful climate makes this city an ideal place for residence 
and study. 

Faculty 

The faculty for the Summer Session will be composed primarily 
of the regular members of the Shaw University faculty, together 
with additional specialists in the field of education. 

9 

Library 

A well-equipped and attractive library, consisting of more than 
15,000 books, is located in Tyler Hall. It is supervised by a com- 
petent librarian who aids the students in their reference work and 
guides them in their general reading. Magazines and daily and 
weekly newspapers provide ample means for the information of 
students on current events. It is the aim of the Administration 
to make the library one of great usefulness in the education of 
the students in technical knowledge and general culture. 

Observation and Directed Teaching Facilities 

Opportunity for observation and directed teaching under the 
supervision of the University Summer School may be provided 
under special conditions through the Raleigh Public School System. 
These facilities are available during the first session only. 



The Shaw University Bulletin 



Dormitory Facilities 

With three dormitories — Estey Hall, Shaw Hall, Convention Hall 
— the University has adequate facilities for housing those who" 
desire to live on the campus during the Summer School. The 
women students are under the supervision of the Director of 
Women's Activities who is assisted by Dormitory Hostesses and 
the men students are under the supervision of the Director of 
Men's Activities. 

Recreation 

Tennis, croquet, baseball, and sightseeing tours are among the 
forms of recreation provided by the University. 

In addition, several social events are held for the students and 
faculty of the Summer Session. 



Teachers' Employment Bureau 

The bureau has secured each year a large number of teaching 
and administrative positions for students and former students. It 
exists for the double purpose of supplying the needs of school 
officials over the State and of helping students and former students 
to find teaching and administrative positions for which they are 
best fitted. 



Assembly 

Assembly exercises are held in Greenleaf Memorial Hall on 
Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. All students are expected to 
attend these exercises. Special addresses are arranged and inter- 
esting musical recitals presented. 



Registration 

Teachers are requested to bring their certificates, credit slips 
from summer schools previously attended, diplomas, or other evi- 
dences of training. These will be needed for registration the first 
day. No student should expect to enter and receive credit after 
Wednesday, June 6, for the first term, and after Saturday, July 14, 
for the second term.

Workshop-Seminar for Principals and 
Supervisors 

Because of the success of the workshop-seminar last year, plans 
are being made to provide during the first session of the 1945 
Summer School a workshop-seminar for teachers, principals, and su- 
pervisors. The workshop-seminar is designed to give its members an 
opportunity to clarify their thinking on problems of educational 
philosophy, and to give them assistance in defining educational objec- 
tives. Each member will be given a chance to work on problems 
which are encountered in his particular school situation. Those who 
bring similar problems will be encouraged to work in small, informal 
groups. In addition, they will have easy access to the services of 
a group of sympathetic and competent workshop specialists. 

Those who attend will be given credit for six semester hours in 
supervision and administration. These hours will fulfill the State's 
requirements for the principal's or supervisor's certificate, and, in 
addition, serve to renew certificates. 

Registration for the workshop will begin June 4. Total cost $24.50. 

For further information, please feel free to communicate with 
the Director of Summer School.
